Beautiful You Stamp Set
This is a pretty easy sketch to use. Just pick out a main image for the square and go from there. I decided to use the dancing women from the Beautiful You stamp set featured in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog on page 24.
I really like the sentiments in this stamp set. I love the mixed fonts and what they are expressing like on this hand stamped card "Live with Passion, Laugh out Loud and Love Deeply".
For this card I decided to just use the stamped image without coloring it in. So I stamped the women with Stampin' Up! Mint Macaron Ink on Mint Macaron Cardstock. The words I stamped with Night of Navy Ink right on top of the women.
I also stamped the hat part of the women in Night of Navy Ink on a piece of the Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and cut it out and glued it to the hat on the stamped image on the Mint Macaron. This is a stamping technique called paper piecing.
Paper Piecing Week 48 was one of my 52 week series of stamping techniques called Technique How To.
Each week included a Blog Post, PDF Printable Tutorial and a Video. Check out all the past 52 Weeks of Technique How To Click Here.
What is your favorite stamping technique. Is there one you would like me to show you?
